Overview

Why We Love This

The EcoGold Secure™ Hunter Pad is a the ultimate pad for professional and show circuit riders who desire a sharp looking pad with all the bells and whistles. All parts are 100% breathable and provide the maximum protection from impact while preventing unwanted saddle movement.

Made in Canada.

*Please Note*
Due to a shortage of black non-slip fabric, the underside of this pad will come with white non-slip fabric temporarily. We apologize for any inconvenience!

EcoGold Secure™ Hunter Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not For Me (also too pricey for what it is) So I ordered this for fox hunting. I thought it would be a bit thicker. I wanted a non slipping (on the horse side, not the saddle side) pad. The fleece is normal/thick but the inner area is super thin. I did not want my saddle to get soaked with sweat. I need a little absorbency in there. So I sent it back. If you want like extreme close contact you might like this pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hunter Saddle Pad A friend recommended the EcoGold hunter saddle pad. I was looking for a breathable, non-slip saddle pad that is suitable for fox hunting and showing. This pad is outstanding in that it performs well and can be easily cleaned by just hosing it off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not stay put Bought 2 pads, one for each of my show horses. After warming up in the schooling ring, it is necessary to get off and rearrange the pad under the saddle because it slips backwards and bulks up under the saddle on both horses. It is really disappointing, especially at this price point. Needs to have a nylon strap for the girth to fit underneath when connecting to the billet straps of the saddle to prevent slippage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from welsh did not approve, want to like it though! I was so excited to try this pad! I love the feel and the lightweight cushion. Something about this pad made my green welsh go bonkers. I’ve used non-slip pads before, no problem. Put this one on and he turns into a bronc. Take it off, fine. I’ve tried everything to get him to like this pad...baby pad underneath, lunging to get him used to the sound of the feel of it. He just won’t have this one certain pad - he’s sensitive to something about it and he usually isn’t picky?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey But Worth It Being the typical cash strapped rider I tried everything to avoid having to put the cash out for this pad but all I did was waste time and energy. This pad is perfect! Fits my Toulouse saddle perfectly, looks great and doesn’t slip on my round “Thelwell” pony. And I got a discount by being a USEF member!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stains easily- shows wear The first time I used this pad, my saddle made a stain on the grip surface (I hadn't oiled it recently). I've washed it according to the instructions but the stains won't come out. In addition to this, the sheepskin mattes and looks very worn after the first 3 uses. I take care of my tack too. I wouldn't recommend this pad for anyone who shows regularly, it won't hold up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We fox hunt so we are in the saddle a long time, we find the Eco Gold pad is the only pad we have found that does not slip. We use it in combination with a foam wither pad to provide optimum comfort for our horses backs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticky Durable, thick, no slip. Perfect for biq equitation.
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this right before one of my shows and it had fitted perfectly. It's looks great and holds up great. I was concerned about the fuzzy part on the outer rim falling off, but it is still extremely stable. Wish that it didn't have padding where the girth was because my girth didn't almost make it.
Date published: 2017-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I finally bought this pad! I never wanted to spend a lot on show pads, thinking the $40 ones were just as good. But they never quite fit around my saddle evenly, and felt like they slipped back even with a non-slip pad underneath. I bought this during the SmartPak sale and was able to use it at a show right afterwards. The quality is terrific - the back has some soft foam padding to it but the sides (under the saddle flaps) are thin for a close contact feeling. It fits my 18" 3AA Voltaire beautifully and evenly all the way around, and is soft and comfortable for my horse. Now it's the only pad I want to use at a show, and my more inexpensive pads are sitting unused.
